SCHEDULE:

7:40 - Zoom link will be posted

We are asking for the usual $3 admission fee (payable to $BostonPoetrySlam) to help pay features, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.


BASIC ZOOM GUIDELINES:


- Please keep your mic *muted* unless it is your turn to read. This means no verbal heckling/cheering/noise making during poems (though we still welcome all that in the chat).


- There will be a brief break for clapping after each poem for applause/rabble rousing.


- Every poet still gets the usual 3 minutes to read.


Any other questions, please post in the event discussion!
